If you snore, it is probably because you are sleeping on your back. Sleeping on your back is actually a problem in itself because you are pulling your tongue forward and back, which creates a vibration that creates a noisy noise that we call snoring.
For most people who snore, their problem lies with not getting a good night’s sleep. For others, the problem is more with the way their body seems to resist the natural flow of air through the nasal passage. Both of these problems can be solved.
If you snore because of the vibrations created by the tongue, there are several things you can do to prevent loud noises while you sleep. While some of these solutions may seem simple, like avoiding positions that you sleep on your back, it can be quite difficult to find them all. Here are some of the things you can try.
First, you should go to bed with some pillows under your head so that your head will be elevated enough to make sure that you sleep on your side. Try this as an experiment. While you sleep, keep your head up so that you won’t need to hold it over your face. After about 2 hours, do a check to see if your snoring stops.
Next, use a chin strap to help reduce the problem. You can put the strap around your head and hold it with a rubber band. That way, your jaw will not relax as much and this will reduce snoring.
Also, there are nasal strips that you can wear in order to stop snoring. These strips help to open up the nasal passages and make it easier for air to flow in and out and also to hold back the throat and prevent snoring.
Also, check to see if you have sleep apnea. This is a condition in which you stop breathing for a while when you sleep. The problem with sleep apnea is that the doctor can only tell if you do have it or not.
Pillow toppers that you can sleep on can help. A good pillow topper, especially one that will fit tightly around your head, can go a long way to preventing snoring.
Another way to try to control snoring is to use neck support. You can get a large variety of neck supports that use different designs and can provide a variety of different ways to control your snoring.
If you use a pillow topper, you can also try changing your sleeping position. Some experts recommend that you try sleeping on your side rather than your back.
There are also changes you can make to your bedding. One of the best solutions to your snoring is a change in your bedding. Consider buying a lighter mattress and/or using a box spring instead of a conventional mattress.
